Stew… do you find that this word is not very ragoûtant ?! Anyway, it’s still pretty darn good beef stew… and as the summer is not here yet (one would have to believe it, I even caught a big sunburn this weekend !), you can still eat is kind of small dish comforting ! The meat cooked slowly and long in the slow cooker (and yes, more is long, more it is good ! We talk about the cooking of the meat, of course, I’m sure you guessed !), result : meat that is tender and tasty perfection. The quantities given are deliberately gargantuan for two, because this is the kind of dish that we don’t cook every day (yes, due to the time of cooking)… and then the beef stew, it is even better warmed up !

Anyway, if you have, you can always concoct a good shepherd’s pie… yes this dish of our childhood, kids will love it… yummy !
